Yes of course!

 Use banshee for that task (other programs like Rythmbox and Gtkpod are fine, but banshee also allows you to sync your computer to many Ipods- allowing you to "copy" all the songs in a friend's ipod without losing yours).
You will surely be able to download music through P2P networks (similar to Napster, I guess) from Internet with Transmission Bittorrent Client (included in the Ubuntu installation).
And to load photos to your Ipod, assuming it has a color screen, you may find GPixPod and F-Spot Foto Manager useful.
For video, I am afraid to tell you I don't remember right now, but I will try to inform you if I do.

Hope you have as much fun with your IPod and Linux as I do!! =)

Another advantage over Gtkpod is its more pleasant appearance.

Sorry, I meant of Banshee over Gtkpod. Anyway, I am sure you will love it;)

Can you help with this problem?
